Hello everyone! I am working on my own USB stick with some basic tools that I like to have on hand. While I'm at it, I will post my grub.cfg just in case it would be helpful to someone.

So far I have the following tools working.

PartedMagic
Backtrack V5.0
Arch Linux Network Installer
Spinrite V6.0
Memtest86+ V4.20

The next tool I am placing onto the drive is the Kaspersky Boot Disk. I have extracted the contents of the ISO that I downloaded from Kaspersky Labs to a folder on the USB stick called kav. I am having an issue booting it.

I am using the following commands to attempt to boot from GRUB2.


linux /kav/boot/rescue subdir=/kav rootfstype=auto init=/init initrd=rescue.igz kav_lang=en udev liveimg

initrd /kav/boot/rescue.igz

boot


So far, I haven't had any luck as I keep getting a kernel panic.

Here is my attached grub.cfg if it is of help to anyone searching :)


## Nate's Boot Disk



## Parted Magic

menuentry "Parted Magic" {

	 echo "Starting Parted Magic..."

	 loopback loop /pmagic/pmagic_2012_3_24.iso

	 linux (loop)/pmagic/bzImage edd=off noapic load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 rw loglevel=0 max_loop=256 noeject iso_location=/pmagic

	 initrd (loop)/pmagic/initrd.img

}



## Backtrack 5

menuentry "Backtrack 5" {

	 echo "Starting Backtrack..."

	 linux /bt5/casper/vmlinuz boot=casper live-media-path=/bt5/casper/ splash

	 initrd /bt5/casper/initrd.gz

}



## Backtrack 5 (i915 module)

	 linux /bt5/casper/vmlinuz boot=casper live-media-path=/bt5/casper/ splash video=i915:modeset=1

	 initrd /bt5/casper/initrd.gz

	 echo "Loading Kaspersky Rescue CD..."

menuentry "Spinrite V6.0" {

	 echo "Loading Spinrite V6.0..."

Kaspersky is "tricky", but you should be able to adapt the isolinux/grub4dos instructions here to grub2 syntax:

Or you could chainload grub.exe from grub2, see post #133:

Good news. I know I posted this awhile back but I finally got Kaspersky to work!

Anyways, here is the GRUB2 entry. You must give the partition where Kaspersky resides a disk label. I named mine 'multiboot'.


## KAV

menuentry "Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10" {

	 echo "Starting Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10..."

	 linux /boot/rescue root=live:CDLABEL=multiboot rootfstype=auto vga=791 init=/init initrd=rescue.igz kav_lang=en udev liveimg splash quiet doscsi nomodeset

	 initrd /boot/rescue.igz

}


Let me know if I can be of help :good:

csnate: I used your suggested menuentry for grub2 to start "Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10" but it thrown the following error.

 

mount: special device /dev/mapper/live-rw does not exist

mount: special device /dev/mapper/live-rw does not exist

mount: special device /dev/mapper/live-rw does not exist

mount: special device /dev/mapper/live-rw does not exist

mount: special device /dev/mapper/live-rw does not exist

 

dracut Warnight can't mount root filesystem

Kernel Panic

 

My USB stick label is "TRK_3-4".

I removed the "vga=791" parameter you mentioned because grub2 does not support it and I replaced it with "gfxpayload=800x600"

 

menuentry "Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10" {
    gfxpayload=800x600
     linux /boot/kaspersky/boot/rescue root=live:CDLABEL=TRK_3-4 rootfstype=auto init=/init initrd=rescue.igz kav_lang=en udev liveimg splash quiet doscsi nomodeset
     initrd /boot/kaspersky/boot/rescue.igz
}
